Colm, there's many many on this forum with more experience of this lure than me (these were actually the first three bass I have had on this lure!), but when I say steady, I guess I mean constant rather than lots of pauses. Not fast, not slow but even and rhythmical with some slight variations along the way. I know Padge does say fish them SLOW and I would have to respect his opinion. I believe they are being used to great effect your side of the Irish Sea at present so keep going!Hi Griff, when you say steady retrieve do you mean a slow retrieve and do you pause in the retrieve (like say witha chug bug)?
